The first commitment is what I mentioned above. A man of God needs to commit to a life of integrity within the home. He needs to come to God and ask the Lord to work in his heart so that he is blameless before the Lord and before his wife and children. But who defines this “walk of integrity?“ That is answered by David in the statement he makes immediately after making this commitment. After he says that he will give heed to the blameless way he makes a request. That request is this, “When will You come to me?” In saying this, David is saying two things. First, he is committing to “giving heed” to the blameless way. The word here speaks of discernment that is gained from listening to another. Therefore what David commits to is to listen to someone. This one he listens to will help him discern how to walk in life—blamelessly. Who is this person? David makes that clear to us when he says, “When will You come to me?” The “You” in this verse is Jehovah God.
To be a man of integrity and blamelessness is to be a man who daily listens to God. To be the godly man of integrity in your home, you will need to meet with God regularly. As you fellowship with God you will be taught how to discern between what is good and what is evil. You will know the right way to walk—and be warned against paths that will hinder you. They are the paths filled with roots and stumbling blocks that trip you up. Men, spend time with God each day—seeking Him—reading His Word—talking with Him so that you begin to learn the way of integrity. This will help you be the man of integrity your family needs within your home. As you face the trials, temptations, and difficult decisions to be that man—may your request each day be this, “Lord, when will You come to me, teach me, strengthen me, guide me, and enable me to be a blameless man?”
